Tonight at 12:01 EST the amazon Breakthrough Novel Award begins. My documents are all as ready as they ever are going to be. I really have no aspirations of winning, I just hope that one of the judges looks at my story and says "Hmmmm"

Woooo Hoooo!!!! Kiss me Momma!! I was asked to send the first three chapters to one agent and sent a query to another. She emailed me asking me to tell her a little bit about myself and I just got this back!!!

I would like to take a look at this. Please send it as an attachment marking the subject field "Requested materials."

I have been an EMT for six years now and a Lt. for three. I live in a small town so ours is an all volunteer agency combined with the fire department. They made me put on full turn out gear for a drill the other night. I honestly don't know how you guys wear all of that stuff. I just did my recert, what a pain!

Helen.

There are no coincidences, I cannot believe that this is happening. God is good, what are the chances an agent would be an EMT and volunteer firefighter. Is God opening a door or what?

Oh I hope it goes well. I think the subject of your books are quite unusual so maybe that is what is catching their attention. Fingers crossed too.

I'll be happy to wish you luck, but you know you don't need it! You have the talent. God gave it to you. If this is what He has in store for you, it will happen. Simple as that!

Prayers are appreciated. I'm 43,000 words into the sequel and working on it right now.

Well I finally got it uploaded, only took 4 hours. I finally converted it to an rtf file and it zoomed. I also heard form the agent just now, she needed it converted to a doc file so it went to her just minutes ago. At least she is reading it.

I'll never forget the help and encouragement that I got. "The Tribe" is half done now, a lot is happening but I go back to work Thursday night so it'll get held up. Anybody want a sneak preview?

I'll put some on the other forum today, but you have to promise to be honest and tell me if you like it or not. Here comes The Tribe.
